Lean and Kanban for knowledge work
Second Generation Lean and Kanban are a fabulous combination for evolutionary improvement and an amazingly effective way to mature your enterprise in less time than other well-known methodologies with virtually no resistance to change. Second-generation Lean focuses on knowledge work and Kanban is an excellent method to visualize and manage continuous evolutionary improvement. In fact, a survey directed by Masa K Maeda, our CEO, and conducted by the Cutter Consortium was published in September 2010. It shows that 58% of the teams doing Kanban reported increased customer satisfaction; 64% reported increase in quality; and 71% reported increase in productivity over other Agile methodologies. Kanban is being adopted also by enterprises that were originally reluctant to other agile methodologies. This is because Kanban doesn’t replace your current methodology. It starts where you currently are and makes it easier for your stakeholders to do continuous improvement. Furthermore, Kanban scales with ease and has fabulous impact at both team and enterprise level. Masa was one of the first Lean Kanban University Accredited Kanban Trainers/Coaches (and the first one in Iberoamerica).
Agile and Scrum
Scrum is the most popular methodology for agile development nowadays. It is easy to understand, apply and is particularly effective to deliver value on a regular basis due to its incremental and iterative nature. Scrum brings your development and QA organizations together to create quality products while eliminating technical debt. Adding Agile thinking to the Scrum practice makes it even more effective because it provides to stakeholders a very solid foundation to improve way they communicate and collaborate, as well as a greater emphasis on quality and value delivered.
This is the PMI® approach to agility. It is the expansion to go beyond te PMBOK® and consider Agile as an alternative for project management. This is different from Serious LeAP® since Serious LeAP actually brings Lean, Agile and other aspects to traditional management.
